Light and blurry

Just bought this today and I'm pretty happy with the results. I'm 33, and as I age I am noticing larger pores and a few fine lines. This balm seems to blur. I don't wear foundation or a lot of makeup in general other than eye makeup, so I like this just to lightly masks the imperfections.

Terrible (for me)

Definitely didn't like this. Used it for the first time the other night for going out with friends and was unhappy when I saw the final results of.my makeup in the mirror close up. My makeup looked splotchy for want of a better term. I used my beauty blender as usual but my foundation makeup didn't cover properly nor did it look as smooth as it usually does. Also,the pores on my face looked like some of them had light makeup dots in them. I wasn't going to change my makeup since i was running late. I simply decided that I will return it. Going back to Too Faced Hangover primer.

Love it

I have dry skin so it helps and makeup goes on sooo much better I would personally only recommend to people with normal or dry skin like myself . I give it 5 stars !

It's good, not great

I just got this and have been using it for a week now. It definitely does the job of covering pores and fine lines, but I agree with the previous reviewers that it's not the best for oily skin. My nose tends to get pretty oily throughout the day and while the works most of the day, by the end of the day it's pretty shiny. I don't have super oily skin so it's not terrible for me and I will definitely keep using the product but if you are pretty oily I would buy a different primer. Overall I like it but I don't know if I would buy it again.

Oily skin beware

I thought this would be more of a cheaper Tatcha silk canvas however it is more of a silicone type primer. I have oily skin so I'm not really into the whole silicone, super slick feeling primers.. so if you are able to play with it before buying I would! I'm sure it would be really good primer if you like that type of primer!

Does anyone know if this stuff works well for oily skin? I like other tarte products, but this one is really expensive so I want to be totally sure it’s good before I buy.

Try this! This is what I use it makes my pores seem smaller and helps cover my acne spots. I have really oily skin. So I use this, the shape tape concealer and Fenty beauty foundation with Becca setting powder and I’m good to go all day! That primer just wasn’t my favorite with how oily I am.

Any suggestions for a good primer? Particularly one that’s not too thick or feels heavy on my face?

Shape Tape Pore & Prime Balm is really nice. I really like it and my make up just blends so much better with it.
